Red Sox Looking At Trio Of Twins
To upgrade their bullpen, the Red Sox have been targeting 3 main relief pitchers, all from the Twins. They are Jesse Crain (right), Brian Fuentes, and Matt Guerrier, all of which are pretty good pitchers and had good years in 2010. Jesse Crain went 1-1/3.04/62, Brian Fuentes went 4-1/2.81/47, and Matt Guerrier went 5-7/3.17/42, as I would probably be happiest with acquiring Fuentes. The model contract seems to be set by Scott Downs and Joaquin Benoit as being around $15 million for 2 or 3 years. I think these are all able relief pitchers and it would be fantastic if the Red Sox got any of them. I think one or two of these players could change the Red Sox from a bad bullpen into a top notch one.
